Book Fairs and Personal Appearances

This year I decided to do a few in-person events. I had three book fairs and one radio appearance scheduled and none of them worked out. It has been very disappointing. The first book fair was in April. There were over 50 authors in attendance, but I think there were less than 20 attendees. I sold 3 books. The second book fair was supposed to be in September. It was canceled/rescheduled due to weather. It was to be held in the town where I live so I was really looking forward to it. It has been rescheduled for next June so hopefully it will happen. The third one was last weekend. It was held at on a college campus in Ft. Worth, TX. Again, a lot of authors present but few customers. There wer...

Dead in a Pickup: Leah Norwood Mystery #3


Dead in a Pickup is now available for preorder on most retail sites. The release date is November 8, 2018. When Leah Norwood finds the body of Brandy Perez in a pickup parked outside a house for sale, she is once again drawn into the hunt for a killer. Brandy was a party girl with a questionable reputation. She dated a lot of different men including local bad-boy Marcus Cantono. At the time of her death, Brandy claimed to be in a relationship with a wealthy businessman, and there are only a few men in Reed Hill who fit that description. Marcus is already dealing with vandals trying to close down his restaurant, his mother’s sixty-fifth birthday party, and family members restarting their drug...

If you’re in the area, I would love to see you.A little about the fest from their website: The Fort Worth Bookfest is a cross-cultural, community-driven, multi-genre literary event that will provide a platform for raising awareness of the transformative power of literacy in our community and throughout our marketing area (TX, NM, OK, AR, and LA). Presented under the banner Fort Worth — A Culture of CommUnity, this festival is destined to take its place as the newest jewel in the “cultural-crown” of the City of Cowboys and Culture.

Digging Deep: Freeing the Ghosts from Our Past

death-164761_1280
We all have them. For some, they constitute nothing more substantial than the imagined boogie man in the closet, or under the bed. For others, the childhood fears are bigger, more powerful, more damaging, usually involving a situation with our parents, siblings, or peers. The end result is the same: we carry these ghosts, either consciously or somewhere deep beneath the surface, throughout our lives. One of my ghosts is pretty easy to pinpoint. Growing up in a family where Mom stayed at home and Dad was an alcoholic, I lived in constant fear that either, a. we would lose our home, or b. Mom would leave—without taking my younger brother or me. She actually threatened that once, a night I will...

Historical Mysteries

Last week, I wrote about what I like and don’t like in a book with romance being a preferred element. Currently, I’m on a historical mystery romance kick. I like the female character to be unusual which is what draws the attention of the male character.I recently read the Lady Julia Grey mysteries by Deanna Raybourn. I really enjoyed the five Julia Grey novels. They were interesting reads, and the romance developed nicely. Julia moved from a timid, proper lady to one who was more adventurous quickly. The last three were novellas, and there wasn’t much of a mystery in them which was a little disappointing. I’m now reading the Lady Darby mysteries by Anna Lee Huber. The Lady Darby series is ve...

An Unexpected (and a little eerie) Side Trip

IMG_2150
As a left-brainer by day, I tend to be a planner: reservations, time schedules, itineraries–even for a casual weekend trip. But sometimes even the best-laid plans go awry. Thanks to a harried schedule and a little trick Travelocity played on me, my husband and I ended up this past Saturday night, in the middle of freaking nowhere, with no hotel room. (Warning: when booking through Travelocity, check your confirmation email CAREFULLY. I searched and booked–I thought–for the 28th. Arrived at the hotel with a confirmation in hand for the 23rd–which had already been charged to my bank account). No matter. After a wonderful evening with close friends in rural Maine (VERY rural!) for their wedding...

Reading Likes and Dislikes

A fellow author recently wrote a post about Alpha men. She said she could take them or leave them, and she liked clever, witty men just as well. I agree. It got me thinking about what I like and don’t like in a novel.I like romance in a book but not necessarily as the main theme. My favorite genre to read is paranormal romance or urban fantasy with a strong romantic element. Of course, I also love mysteries. I will, however, read just about anything that has romance in it. I do like Alpha men, but I’m not opposed charming fellows who are masculine. One book I enjoyed several years ago was a book called Some Like it Charming by Megan Bryce. Charming can be sexy. I also love to read series. I ...

I Can Hear You Better Now

toast-1077984_1920
I stopped eating toast and cakes and pies, and I can hear you better now. Deafness runs in my family. My younger brother suffers considerable hearing loss. He has one daughter who is profoundly deaf and had to attend a special school. My older brother has been wearing hearing aids for twenty years. My “deafness” began quite abruptly. We were on vacation, halfway between Tampa, FL and Ft. Worth, TX. I awoke in the hotel room on the second day of our vacation with a terrible ringing in my ears. I was alarmed. I wasn’t sure if it signaled high blood pressure, an inner ear infection, or . . . what? After three hours and numerous tests in the local emergency ward, I was informed I had a condition...

McKinney Book Festival

I was originally going to write about my experience at the McKinney Book Festival. This event was supposed to be held yesterday, September 22, 2018, but due to weather concerns, the organizers canceled it. I don’t know if I’m disappointed or relieved.The reasoning behind the rescheduling of the festival was that few people would attend because of the heavy rain and flooding. I agree attendance would have been minimal so I’m relieved my time and money wasn’t wasted, but I had been looking forward to the event. I have only attended one such fair before. That one was in the spring, and we had a cold snap with a little bit of rain. There were almost no attendees so the event was a bust. I had be...
